According to the news surfaced claiming that the Taiwan-based Largan Technology as well as Japan- and China-based camera lens makers have sent dual-lens camera test samples to Apple for potential inclusion in its next-generation iPhone 7 Plus.
As per the upstream supply chain source also notes that Largan currently supplies over 60% of Apple’s smartphone cameras, leading some markets analysts to admit Apple is seeking dual-camera products from other makers to lower potential risk factor.
While the DigiTimes website has a mixed track record at reporting on Apple’s potentially upcoming product plans, but its souces citing with it the upstream supply chain have proven reliable in the past. With today’s report also follows predictions by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that two 5.5-inch versions of the “iPhone 7 Plus” are apparently in development, one with a single iSight rear-facing camera sensor and another boasting a dual-camera design.
If the rumored iPhone 7 Plus with a dual-lens camera system is real then it would definitely take advantage of imaging algorithms that Apple acquired through its purchase of Israeli camera technology company LinX Imaging last year, will now witness in the upcoming September-bound iPhone 7, 7 Plus.
